. nice to speak to you. >>> now i want to bring in cnn's national security contributor, fran townsend. today, the president of france said something that just really stopped me in my tracks. he said france has no intention of staying in mali but we have an objective. that is, when we leave, there should be security in mali, a legitimate authority, electoral process and no more terrorists. if you substitute afghanistan for mali, it sounds a heck of a lot like the american objective in afghanistan which of course was not met and has been abandoned. can france get that job done? >> no. it's sort of one of these big audacious goals. you have to wonder what the president of france was thinking. it's one thing to have a limited objective to get your hostages out, to support the malian government and troops, to try and provide security to the capital and to assist. those are achievable goals. but this is really quite stunning. >> stunning and something that could mean something much more significant or drawn out. the pentagon says look, we're definitely going to be involved in mali and they

in the "cnn newsroom." i'm wolf blitzer in washington. we're getting immediate reaction from republican leadership to what the president of the united states and the vice president just announced over at the white house. dana bash is our chief congressional correspondent. dana, are you getting some reaction from the speaker? >> reporter: that's right. the speaker's spokesman we should note saying the house committees of jurisdiction will review the recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will take a look at that. so that really undersores what we have been reporting for the past several days, even weeks that the house republicans are effectively a sideshow right now. certainly what they are going to feel ultimately if there is an ultimately will matter, but right now the focus is on the senate and is on the president's fellow democrats. and so much of what he was saying and focusing on, and will focus on in the next few days, is going to be on people in his own party. that really is something that i think is important to underscore. couple things here. first of all, there wa

[ laughter ] if you want to have a debate about whistle control, i'm all ears. [ laughter ] but piers isn't interested in having a productive discussion. look at the way he ignores his guest radio host, gun advocate, and conspiracy sommelier alex jones' and his perfectly reasonable questions. >> how many gun murders were there in britain? >> how many great white sharks kill people every year but they're scared to swim? >> how many gun murders were there in britain last year? >> how many chimpanzees can dance on the head of a pin? >> stephen: yes, answer the real questions, piers!

-election. not a good idea. >> jennifer: michelle, ben bernaanke told cnn that he's in favor of totally scrapping the debt ceiling. do you think he's on to something? should we get rid of it? >> i agree with him. there is no reason to have it, and then every so often we have to have arguments whether to raise it and whether or not the u.s. government is going to default on its obligations to people all over the world. i think bernanke is a very smart person and i think he knows what he's talking about and hopefully his sentiment will pick up steam on the hill. >> jennifer: we'll see about that. this is a subject that is not going away. let me switch quickly to politics. the rnc chairman reince priebus will pursue rewarding the states electoral votes by congressional districtses. >> representation by congressional district. >> jennifer: and if that were the case then the president would have lost michigan, pen pen, ohio, florida his victory would have been down to two votes. >> the republicans always want to change the rules they only want to change those rules in areas where it benefits them. rei
